CHANGE PLATFORMS

Overview

There is lift, escalator and stairs access between each platform and Level 0. these directions are limited to stairs and lift routes to/from platforms 1 and 6 since the escalators within each Mall are more difficult to find than the lifts. There are, however, simple escalator options to/from platforms 2 - 3 and 4 - 5.

There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

We understand that platforms 1 and 2 usually serve southbound trains to Lewisham, platforms 3 and 4 usually serve northbound trains to Stratford whilst platforms 5 and 6 usually serve northbound trains to Bank. On this basis, we believe that, as you face the front of the train, the doors would open:

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1
From Platforms 2 - 3
From Platforms 4 - 5
From Platform 6

From Platform 1

As you go from the front of southbound trains, you pass the gap to steps to the Ticket Hall. The next recess leads to the East Level 1 Exit towards the lift and escalators.
